Josephine Harris, RWS, NEAC (1931-2020) was a well-known painter, printmaker and glass engraver. She was born in Plymouth and studied art at York School of Art and then at Plymouth College of Art from 1948. In 1958 she left Plymouth and moved to London and settled in Barnes, SW13 where she maintained a workshop for many years. Josephine Harris exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1960, at the New English Art Club from 1961 (where she became a member) and with the prestigious Royal Watercolour Society to which body she was elected a member in 1967. She worked regularly in London, Cornwall, Yorkshire and Italy. Inspired by the work of Laurence Whistler she enrolled in a ‘glass decorating’ class at Morley College and she steadily built a very strong reputation as an engraver of glass. In 1997 she was elected Master of the Art Workers Guild. Her work is represented in the collection of the Royal Watercolour Society.
